Education 

New York Institute of Technology (NYIT), Old Westbury, NY, US, Bachelors, Architecture

Students in the program concentrate their studies in advanced computer aided design (CAD). With a focus in advanced CAD. candidate undertakes upper-level courses on the use of computers in areas such as the preparation of construction drawing, the planning of advanced structures, and the preparation of three-dimensional visual representations, as well as the use of computers in modern construction management. Upper-level courses in contract management, construction supervision, and real estate fundamentals.
Two semesters of design fundamentals in the first-year design studios introduce the student to the basic principals of 3-D design through a series of composition, planning, and introductory design problems. In the second year, progressively more demanding problems, in addition to significant building design analysis exercises, are undertaken.

In the third year, students are required to solve architectural problems involving small but increasingly complex building programs. Urban, community, and building design programs requiring inventive structural systems are emphasized in the fourth year.
In the fourth and final year of the curriculum, the student is required to complete a capstone Project Integration Studio in which all aspects of a building's design and architectural technology are fully explored and integrated into one comprehensive exercise. Although the design studios form the core of the experience at the School of Architecture and Design, complementary avenues of study and inquiry operate as essential aspects of the program and the training of students. Courses in architectural history introduce the student to the history of the built domain from the earliest times to the present. Methods of historical building design analysis and interpretation are introduced to the student through the study of great architectural monuments, as well as through the study of cities. Architectural history is introduced not only as a chronology of building development, but as a body of knowledge, an anthology, that serves as a tool in the design process. In addition to the survey courses, the school offers history seminars in areas such as architectural theory, the history of building technology, and the history of urban planning
